Hi Bruno,
                I'm quoting your response to an older post because I have a residual question. If "I" improve my ability to select the best future outcomes, don't "I" also choose the worst ones according to MWI and the rule of sum-over-histories? I seem to be competing against myself. M.A.



        At some point I could "defined" consciousness as the state of (instinctively at first) betting on a history. This will speed up yourself relatively to your current stories, and make greater the set of your possible continuation. As an exemple you become aware an astero´d is coming nearby make it possible for you to envisage a set of possible decisions, which can themselves augment your probability of survival.
